Free agent running back Frank Gore and the Lions are reportedly close to an agreement. So close that it could be announced on Thursday morning.

The five-time Pro Bowler rushed for 961 yards and three touchdowns with the Colts last season. He spent three years with the team after ten seasons with the 49ers.

Last season, Detroit had the NFL’s worse rushing offense and could continue to look for upgrades in the backfield. One of the potential additions to the backfield is LeGarrette Blount who is reportedly visiting with the team on Friday.
